The Detroit You’ve Never Met

Over the weekend, I stumbled across this video series of Detroit’s 1968 Olympic bid, titled “The Detroit You’ve Never Met” on Curbed Detroit. From both a design and historical standpoint, I loved seeing the mock-ups and illustrations of infrastructures never to be built, with things like Olympic Village and a People Mover-like light rail to get people around the stadiums. I also thought it funny how, with the title “The Detroit You’ve Never Met,” it sounds like the way to market Detroit hasn’t changed since 1968.

I posted the first of the three videos below, but be sure to check them all out for a trip back in time to what could have been.
